The Alamo- Free
The Battle of the Alamo (February 23 – March 6, 1836) was a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. Following a 13-day siege, Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna launched an assault on the Alamo Mission near San Antonio de Béxar (modern-day San Antonio, Texas, United States), killing all of the Texian defenders. Santa Anna’s cruelty during the battle inspired many Texians—both Texas settlers and adventurers from the United States—to join the Texian Army. Buoyed by a desire for revenge, the Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, ending the revolution.

Camanche Lookout Park
Comanche Lookout Park is a 96-acre public park owned by the City of San Antonio.
Nice park! Great paved walkways with miles of trails. Lots of playgrounds for kids and pokestops (if you’re into that sort of thing).
Great for running, biking, or just walking into nature. Full of lush trees and landscaping that is well kept up.
Market Square
Great place to buy souvenirs
Historic Market Square thrives today on a plaza that was gifted to the original settlers “for their use and entertainment” by the King of Spain in 1730.

  1. Wow, looks like I'll need to make my way over to San Antonio .. and yes, I do remember the Alamo (learned about it in my history class, and always thought it would be really cool to check it out in person). How old is your youngest? We're expecting our second one in a few weeks! Thank you for sharing those tips, keep em coming!

  2. I love the narration throughout the video. Some humorous quips, nice camera work, and incredibly informative! My favorite part was baby hanging out with a wet towel on his head. Haha!
